Hello there! I'm concerned about Me Before You because it is shelved under adult fiction. Could you pick another book that is YA?

Hello! The Last of the Spirits appears to be middle grade, could you choose another book that is YA?


Anna (Adventures with a Book Nerd) (bookish_anna) Aliyah wrote: "The Piano Lesson

Life With Pi"


Hello! I'm a little nervous about The Piano Lesson because it isn't shelved under YA, could you choose another book? Also, did you mean Life of Pi? Or is it Life with Pi?

Hello! I'm a little concerned about Tear because it is shelved under NA before YA. Could you choose another book just to be safe?

Here's my replacement book. Sorry about the first one. I made sure it was YA but didnt know it needed to be the top genre.

message 48: by Susan (new)

Susan (jazzescrapper) | 2193 comments Hi there, I was looking at the books and saw that The Unexpected Everything is up there 2 times. I didn't know if a different book was supposed to be there by accident.


Lindsay♫SingerOfStories♫ (lindsaysingerofstories) | 232 comments Umm, I hate to be "that girl" but can I please change one of my books? I'm really sorry. If I can't its ok but if I can that'd be awesome and really appreciated. I would love to take out The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater and put in The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath & the Dawn, #2) by Renee Ahdieh . I just finished the first book and I need, need, need to read the second one! lol. If its not possible, then just disregard this message. Thanks a mil!


message 50: by Trinity (new)

Trinity I'm soo sorry but I just realized that when I put up City of Fallen Angels (The Mortal Instruments, #4) by Cassandra Clare someone already picked that book, I will gladly put in a replacement so there are no duplicates. My change is: Crossed (Matched, #2) by Ally Condie
